Real time data limition

I'm looking for a reliable data provider from which I can download one-minute quotes in real time through an api without limiting the number of quotes... I'll explain: I trade through Interactive Brokers, and there they limit the number of simultaneous quotes to only 100... you can buy an extension for another 100 Quotes at a cost of $30 per month... You can buy extensions up to a limit of 1000 quotes in total and at a very high monthly cost... I'm looking for an alternative. Any recommendations? Can I connect Amibroker to one data provider and perform automatic trading via interactive at the same time?

IQFeed it offers relatively cheap data and long backfills

ive used first rate data for minute data on futures and found them good as a cheap but reliable source.


just to add to my comment: FRD is only historical data not real time, for real time data I use IB which I need/use for live trading.

Hi, thanks for the answers.
The thing is that I need real time quotes and that I won't be limited to only 100 at a time. And that is not possible in Interactive Brokers. So I thought maybe there is another data provider through which you can get real-time data to Amibroker for the purpose of running an algo and the commands to send to Interactive...

I don’t think you need to be receiving you data from IBKR to be able to trade via them. My understanding is that the IB controller is independent of the database which calls it.

Yes IBController is independent and separate. You can use other data sources while using IBController.
